The Vivo V17 Pro has just been launched in Malaysia and some of you may be wondering why exactly you should get this phone. Now before I give my personal picks of 5 reasons you should consider getting this phone, let us get the specs out of the way. The V17 Pro is being advertised as a mid-range smartphone as it comes with a Snapdragon 675 chipset coupled with the Adreno 612 GPU. Now that it is clear the phone is marketed as a mid-ranger, here are 5 reasons you should consider getting the Vivo V17 Pro.
Reason 1 is because of its super wide-angle selfie camera. Now Vivo has been known as the manufacturer that is the first to many things as seen especially in the Vivo NEX where they were the first to introduce the in-display fingerprint sensor as well as the pop-up selfie camera. Vivo is now the first to having not 1 but 2 sensors in their pop-up selfie camera on the V17 Pro. The phone comes with a 32-megapixel f/2.0 aperture lens as well as an 8-megapixel 17mm ultra-wide-angle lens. This allows you to take some amazing wide-angle selfies which makes your photos look a lot better. An added bonus is the drop detection added. This means that if the pop-up camera is open and the phone detects a fall, it will automatically close it to protect the camera.
The 2nd reason is because of the quad camera set up provided on the V17 Pro. Taking a look at the camera shows us that the phone comes with a 48-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel 13mm ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens and finally a 2-megapixel f/2.4 depth sensor. Now that is a lot of cameras. The pictures on the phone look stunning even without using the 48-megapixel lens and the ultra-wide-angle lens surprised me as it still maintained its sharpness unlike some other phones I have tested. The depth sensor also adds to it as it provided some amazing portrait shots due to the fact that it is not only using software to create the depth effect but a dedicated lens.
The Vivo V17 Pro should also be considered as it has an amazing super night mode for its cameras, both the front and the back sensors. Many smartphones try a bit too hard to bring out the highlights and the shadows when using the night mode but the V17 Pro on the other hand provides amazing low light shots with great details and ensures the shot does not look too fake. This is partly helped by the AI imaging which is the cause of the great details. Majority of smartphones fall short when it comes to night time selfies but not the V17 Pro as even at night, the selfie camera provides some amazing shots.
Now onto reason number 4 to get this phone, that is because of its Ultra Full View Display. The phone comes with no notch which is a big plus for me as it still annoys me that some phones have a notch even in 2019. The screen is a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution. This led to me having an amazing viewing experience especially for media consumption such as when I was watching Netflix or YouTube videos.
The final reason the V17 Pro should be considered is because of its build quality. For a mid-ranger, the phone as an amazing build and has a premium feel to it. The phone is a no compromise phone when it comes to ports and buttons as it still maintains the 3.5mm headphone jack even in 2019. Now that’s what I call impressive. It also provides some amazing color options such as the Night Black variant and also the Crystal White. The phone also comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
Now these are some of the reasons I personally feel you should consider getting this phone. To me, the Vivo V17 Pro really is a bang for your buck phone as it comes in at a starting price of RM 1699 and that is why it should be in your consideration to buy.
